Will 18 Seconds Per Lap be Enough?
If you’ve been following my posts, you know that six of us 60+ guys are working to make a run at pursuit gold in Trexlertown next month.
Track racing is a boutique sport, which means that there aren’t many competitors. Unfortunately, the good riders tend to continue to ride, year after year which is, of course, a great thing for all of us.
Our calculation is that we need to be able to ride 12 laps at 18 seconds per lap to be competitive. We’re not there yet, but we’re trying.

Remember that I told you about the great RSS feeds in MyBikeInfo?
You will find the RSS icon at the bottom of the bar. One of my favorite links is VeloNews and that link is a great asset since the Tour de France is just a few days away.
